I have no idea how this would be done, but muy guess would be making 
QKeySequence "mouse aware" or introducing a new class QMouseSequence or 
QKeyAndMouseSequence (obviously better names needed) that you could feed to 
QShortcut, i don't see an "obvious" problem in making this with a binary 
compatible change, but as said i've no idea how the code would work at all :D
